There are so many small towns around the north shore of Lake Tahoe that it can be difficult to choose the one for your next getaway. A vacation at our lakefront Tahoe Vista Hotel is sure to be a great choice for you. Why choose Tahoe Vista? Here are a few reasons.
Location, Location, Location
Tahoe Vista is a small town located just outside of Kings Beach. With plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment nearby, it is a great place for a getaway. The beaches on the East Shore, including Sand Harbor in Incline Village, are just a 20 minute drive away. Tahoe City is about 20 minutes away, and the west shore, with attractions like Emerald Bay, is less than an hour’s scenic drive from Tahoe Vista. For winter getaways, Tahoe Vista is located just a 20 minute drive from Northstar, and Diamond Peak, and is a great option if you would like to visit Lake Tahoe and go skiing or riding.
Although Tahoe Vista is located near some pretty amazing attractions, Tahoe Vista itself is a pretty great place to be. Stretches of sandy beaches dot the shoreline, with plenty of places to take a dip or hang out and catch some rays. The Franciscan Lakeside Lodge is a great Tahoe Vista hotel to choose, because we have our very own sandy beach and private pier. Relax in one of our beach chairs, swim in the refreshing waters of Lake Tahoe, or board your boat from our private pier. Did we mention that buoy rentals are just $25/day for lodging guests?
Outdoor adventures abound in Tahoe Vista. From water sports like boating and swimming to land-based adventures like biking and hiking, you will want to spend your time outside in Tahoe Vista. The Franciscan Lakeside Lodge is located just one mile from the North Tahoe Regional Park. A paved walking or biking path from The Franciscan to the park makes getting there easy and enjoyable. This park boasts a disc-golf course, walking and biking trails, playgrounds, playing fields, and the Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park, an aerial trekking and ziplining course through the soaring Tahoe pines. In the winter, the park transforms into a winter wonderland, with sledding, snowmobile rentals, and groomed cross-country ski or snowshoe trails.
If you want to get out on the water during your stay in Tahoe Vista, that is easy to do. The Tahoe Adventure Company offers paddleboard and kayak rentals, and is located next door to the Franciscan. A boat launch is also located next door to The Franciscan, and buoys are just $25/day for lodging guests.
